  1. Are you trying to say that you haven't noticed? Not when they have an agenda to achieve. If Kashmir is not peaceful why is modi talking about investment there? Why invest in a warzone? Well the army was still there wasn't it? I never said what capacity it was in. You claimed it was never there at all. So hindu resistance is killing innocent people in false encounters and raping women? No different from islamic supremacy then. Same as in Panjab. Security forces AKA ravan sena killing Sikhs in false encounters and raping women there. That was down to policies of our Sikh leaders. No relation to the Kashmir issue. And it was indian propoganda that they were not torturing anyone in Panjab in the 1990s. your eunuch prime minister manmohan lied before the UN that india was not practising torture on the Sikhs in Panjab. Was this propaganda as well? So what? KPS Gill wore a turban as well. So did SSP Ajit Sandhu. Virk. Are you trying to say that they didn't kill and torture thousands of people? Why? i never differentiated between Sikh soldiers and non-Sikh soldiers. They are all part of the same army. Just like Panjab ravan sena had police majority. You want to be proud of KPS gill and the other sikhs because they were Sikhs? And turn a blind eye to their killings and torture? Just because you think so? I have sympathy for every person killed in this conflict. To me neither are more precious. But to you they are. You seem very happy to portray a murdering army as some heroic resistance. BTW what sympathy do you show for the thousands of people of india who die daily because of hunger, yet the moeny is spent by the indian govt to station thousands ofsoldiers in a state to kill and torture people there?
  2. Who said going to any place for work is wrong? I'm talking about a deliberate attempt to change demographics. Dear oh dear. The Indian Army has been in Kashmir since 1948. So if it's only such a small amount why kill thousands of innocent people over it? Why spend so much money on a small piece of land when that same money can be used to stop people all over india dying of hunger? Why not learn from Duryodhans example and give up a small piece of land to save the greater land? 6000 people daily die on average from starvation. Do you really think that such a small peice of land matters to these people? Why? If they are sons of the soil why should they leave their own land to go elsewhere? What if the British said to the Indians who wanted independence go to some other land and have your hindustan there? What if Banda Bahadur was told to take his Sikh state somewhere else? Disintegration of a manufactured state can only be a good thing. Not just for India but for Pakistan as well as many other countries around world. For what the indian state has done to its people it DOESN'T deserve to exist. Only states that uplift their people mand help them grow deserve to survive. A lie. Abdullah was a great friend of nehru and was opposed to pakistan. But nehru still had abdullah thrown in jail for years. Abdullah never once spoke of independence from india yet he was treated like a criminal. I bet that you are very happy with abdullahs treatment aren't you kanwar deep? Could be 100%. Fact is that the army have been killing innocent people and raping women there for decades. Shame on you masquarading as a sikh of the guru and wholeheartedly supporting such atrocities on other humans. No ifs. And that is why they yhave so many problems in their own country. But just by saying this you have proved yourself to be a proper maggot by trying to blame others to hide to your misdeeds. India is learning from them. India is no different from Pakistan. Both are different sides of the same coin. You should think about how much brown-nosing you are doing kanwar deep. You are coming across as a really disgusting human being in this topic.
  3. I agree. They want independence or a merger with Pakistan. BUT...article 370 at least protected them from being swamped by people from other states. In Panjab we have seen mass immigration from Bihar, which then reduces the Sikh vote. The idea to to make these people a minority in their own homeland. Just like China has done for the last 10 years in East Turkestan to dilute the people there who want autonomy or freedom from chinese rule. Same with Tibet. To the Kashmiris 370 was the last line of defence from civilians. That is really their prerogative isn't it? What they want to do with their homeland is up to them. Because autonomy doesnt mean that the army will not kill Kashmiris in false encounters or rape their women. You know, just the indian army and police did in Panjab for a decade? I'm sure that you're aware that the indian army tortures kashmiris as well. How does autonomy prevent this? You must have the answer. I agree the situatoin is worse but that was majorly to do with the torture and killings of innocent people by the indian state. The same as they did in Panjab. Just killing Sikhs youths anywhere. All-out war against the terrorist indian state would be worse wouldn't it? What if the Kashmiri militants step up their game because of this? What would it achieve? Pakistan has already toned down trade with india and have closed their airspace to india by some reports. Bottom line is, that you can't kill people and expect them to be loyal to you. India has been a terrorist state right from 1947. It has killed it's own citizens in to preserve what it falsely perceives to be the motherland.
  4. Hearing the news of India revoking Article 370 in Kashmir made me think again about this topic. Article 370 was a promise made to Kashmiris by Govt of India in 1947. Since then they have had their own autonomy except in matters related to currency defence etc. By revoking article 3870, the govt of India are going to escalate what is already the longest running war. The Govt of India did the same to the Sikhs. Make all these promises before partition and then renege on the promises made. Its so ironic that these people beleiving in "Ram Raaj" etc have totally abandoned the ethics and teachings of the ancient holy sanskrit texts. Govt of India has learned nothing from Mahabharat and are making the same mistakes again. They are prepared to kill their own citizens over it. India killing its own citizens is nothing new. They have been doing it in thousands since 1947. This move will give fresh impetus to starting the war back up. The british really did a disservice to south asia by leaving india and pakistan as countries.
  5. Anyone heard of this "The Enchanted Parrot" ? https://ia800209.us.archive.org/0/items/cu31924022986115/cu31924022986115.pdf It is very similiar in structure to Sri CharitroPakhyan Granth, and Panchtantra.

  7. Acoording to my Balmiki Ramayan version this battle was an actual event. Raja Dasrath did aid the Devtas in their battle against the Deints. Just to add to the actual charitar it was these two "vars" that Kakei received that she asked for Shri Ram Chander to go into exile for 14 years and for her son Bharat to be made King.
  8. The way that the folk-stories from around the world were given an Arabesque/Persian/Islamic colouring. To make it seem as if they originated there and were the original authors.

  10. Interesting. Good share Dal. Will try and get some time to compare this writing to Sri Gur Sobha. They would have been written quite close to each other. Maybe we can have a quick try and translation of this seeing as it's not too long?
  11. Yes certainly after reading stories from 1001 nights.
  12. When I first heard of this story, and reading the charitar, I asked myself why didn't Sohni know that the pitcher "gharra" which was the essential tool in helping her across and back the river, was raw. I think that as she had made this journey many times, and the intense desire to see Mahiwal, she simply took it for granted the pitcher she placed would always be the same one. There are differences between raw and baked clay products, primarily weight and feel. Coming to the point of view from her brother, he saw that there was a singularly essential item that Sohni needed, and he replaced that with an inferior item. This resulted int he deaths of both Sohni and Mahiwal. Replacing something that does the job, with another of poor quality. A bit like the replacement of the first Queen with the second in the root story?
  13. Yes, I noticed that as well. The caste of Mahiwal was not Jatt either. in the famous love-story he was actually a Turk from Turkestan (Samarkand, I think). Sohni was a Gujjar. In the original story, it was Sohni's sister-in-law who replaced the pitcher with a raw pitcher. I think with these, the names and some important aspects of their stories have been used with a little tweaking here and there, just to differentiate from the actual story. I think the intended putrpose of this was to not think that it was just a another version of the actual story.
  14. I know. I've been a bit selfish lately. I have been watching "Narcos: Mexico," well binge-watching it actually. And reading a book which is almost 600 pages long. And listening to a lot of katha of "Sri Gur Panth Parkash." I will try and get more charitars uploaded regularly.
  15. I don't think it can ever be enough. Maybe this is why SGGS is so large. To remind Sikhs as such.
  16. Chritar 101: Tale of Sohni Mahiwal ਚੌਪਈ ॥ Chaupaee ਰਾਵੀ ਤੀਰ ਜਾਟ ਇਕ ਰਹੈ ॥ ਮਹੀਵਾਲ ਨਾਮ ਜਗ ਕਹੈ ॥ On the banks of river Ravi, a peasant Jat called Mahinwal used to live. ਨਿਰਖਿ ਸੋਹਨੀ ਬਸਿ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਗਈ ॥ ਤਾ ਪੈ ਰੀਝਿ ਸੁ ਆਸਿਕ ਭਈ ॥੧॥ A woman named Sohani fell in love with him and came under his dominance.(1) ਜਬ ਹੀ ਭਾਨ ਅਸਤ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਜਾਵੈ ॥ ਤਬ ਹੀ ਪੈਰਿ ਨਦੀ ਤਹ ਆਵੈ ॥ At the Sunset, she used to swim across the river and there (to see him). ਦ੍ਰਿੜ ਗਹਿ ਘਟ ਉਰ ਕੇ ਤਰ ਧਰੈ ॥ ਛਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਪੈਰ ਪਾਰ ਤਿਹ ਪਰੈ ॥੨॥ Holding an earthen pitcher in her hand she would jump in (the river) and arrive at the other side.(2) ਏਕ ਦਿਵਸ ਉਠਿ ਕੈ ਜਬ ਧਾਈ ॥ ਸੋਵਤ ਹੁਤੋ ਬੰਧੁ ਲਖਿ ਪਾਈ ॥ One day when she ran out, her brother, who was slumbering there, saw her. ਪਾਛੈ ਲਾਗਿ ਭੇਦ ਤਿਹ ਚਹਿਯੋ ॥ ਕਛੂ ਸੋਹਨੀ ਤਾਹਿ ਨ ਲਹਿਯੋ ॥੩॥ He followed her and discovered the secret but Sohani did not realise.(3) ਭੁਜੰਗ ਛੰਦ ॥ Bhujang Chhand ਛਕੀ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਬਾਲਾ ਤਿਸੀ ਠੌਰ ਧਾਈ ॥ Imbued in love, she ran to the direction, ਜਹਾ ਦਾਬਿ ਕੈ ਬੂਟ ਮੈ ਮਾਟ ਆਈ ॥ Where, under the bush, she had hidden the pitcher. ਲੀਯੌ ਹਾਥ ਤਾ ਕੌ ਧਸੀ ਨੀਰ ਮ੍ਯਾਨੇ ॥ She picked up the pitcher, jumped into the water, ਮਿਲੀ ਜਾਇ ਤਾ ਕੌ ਯਹੀ ਭੇਦ ਜਾਨੇ ॥੪॥ And came to meet her lover but none could fathom the secret.(4) ਮਿਲੀ ਜਾਇ ਤਾ ਕੌ ਫਿਰੀ ਫੇਰਿ ਬਾਲਾ ॥ ਦਿਪੈ ਚਾਰਿ ਸੋਭਾ ਮਨੋ ਆਗਿ ਜ੍ਵਾਲਾ ॥ Thus she would go to meet him again and again, to quench her thirst of the fire of passion. ਲਏ ਹਾਥ ਮਾਟਾ ਨਦੀ ਪੈਰਿ ਆਈ ॥ ਕੋਊ ਨਾਹਿ ਜਾਨੈ ਤਿਨੀ ਬਾਤ ਪਾਈ ॥੫॥ She would row back with the pitcher, as if nothing had happened.(5) ਭਯੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਤ ਲੈ ਕਾਚ ਮਾਟਾ ਸਿਧਾਯੋ ॥ ਤਿਸੈ ਡਾਰਿ ਦੀਨੋ ਉਸੇ ਰਾਖਿ ਆਯੋ ॥ (One day) Her brother reached there early in the morning with an unbaked earthen pitcher. ਭਏ ਸੋਹਨੀ ਰੈਨਿ ਜਬ ਹੀ ਸਿਧਾਈ ॥ He broke into pieces the baked one and put the unbaked-one in its place. ਵਹੈ ਮਾਟ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਛਕੀ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਆਈ ॥੬॥ The night fell, Sohani came and, taking that pitcher, plunged into water.(6) ਦੋਹਰਾ ॥ Dohira ਅਧਿਕ ਜਬ ਸਰਿਤਾ ਤਰੀ ਮਾਟਿ ਗਯੋ ਤਬ ਫੂਟਿ ॥ When she had swam about half way, the pitcher started to crumble ਡੁਬਕੀ ਲੇਤੇ ਤਨ ਗਯੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਗੇ ਛੂਟਿ ॥੭॥ And her soul abandoned her body.(7) ਚੌਪਈ ॥ Chaupaee ਮੇਹੀਵਾਲ ਅਧਿਕ ਦੁਖੁ ਧਾਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਕਹਾ ਸੋਹਨੀ ਰਹੀ ਬਿਚਾਰਿਯੋ ॥ Mahinwal was dismayed, ‘Where has Sohani gone?’ ਨਦੀ ਬੀਚ ਖੋਜਤ ਬਹੁ ਭਯੋ ॥ ਆਈ ਲਹਿਰ ਡੂਬਿ ਸੋ ਗਯੋ ॥੮॥ He jumped into the river to search, but in the waves lost himself.(8) ਏਕ ਪੁਰਖ ਯਹ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਸੁਧਾਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਮੇਹੀਵਾਲ ਸੋਹਨਿਯਹਿ ਮਾਰਿਯੋ ॥ Some said, Mahinwal himself killed Sohani, ਕਾਚੋ ਘਟ ਵਾ ਕੋ ਦੈ ਬੋਰਿਯੋ ॥ ਮੇਹੀਵਾਲ ਹੂੰ ਕੋ ਸਿਰ ਤੋਰਿਯੋ ॥੯॥ But the fact is, with unbaked pitcher she was killea and then he was killed by hitting his head.(9)(1) ਇਤਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਪਖ੍ਯਾਨੇ ਪੁਰਖ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰੇ ਮੰਤ੍ਰੀ ਭੂਪ ਸੰਬਾਦੇ ਇਕ ਸੌ ਇਕ ਚਰਿਤ੍ਰ ਸਮਾਪਤਮ ਸਤੁ ਸੁਭਮ ਸਤੁ ॥੧੦੧॥੧੮੬੫॥ਅਫਜੂੰ॥ 101st Parable of Auspicious Chritars Conversation of the Raja and the Minister, Completed with Benediction.

  17. You are right. gurbani is highly repetitive. Majority of Gurbani is highly repetitive after Mool Mantar. I like to think of Gurbani replicating life. Everyday we repeat the same things, usually in the same order. Gurbani is repetitive like this.
